The Power of Fujifilm Colors: See Pure Fuji Colors in Action at our New Fujifilm Film Simulations Group


Let’s start with a curiosity:

The same guy at Fujifilm, who crafted the original films like Velvia, is still in charge of developing new film simulations. Yep, he is responsible for Fujifilm’s color science since 50 years now! We reported about Minami-San here. A life devoted to colors.

A devotion, that translates into those lovely film simulations, Fujifilm X and GFX shooters usually appreciate a lot.

Personally, I am at a point, where film simulation are one of the reasons, I would not leave the Fuji system anymore. I mean, it’s nice to know I come home from a 2 weeks holiday with many images, and that those lovely film simulations will save me lots of editing time because they give me great results out of the box.

And then I thought…

Many of you reading this blog, maybe don’t own a Fujifilm camera, maybe you just think to get one, and maybe you wonder what’s all the buzz around these “film simulations”.

Well, in order to show you this, I decided to launch e new facebook group, dedicated to Fujifilm film simulation: Fujifilm Film Simulations Facebook Group.

In this group, images can be edited in all their parts (sharpening, shadow/highlight recovery etc), except for colors. The colors must come purely out of the Fujifilm camera (or be applied in post in Capture One / Lightroom)

So, if you are curious to see the Fujifilm film simulations in action, or if you want to share your own images and display the power of Fuji colors, then feel free to join here.

Square Lens Hood for Fujinon XF27mm f/2.8


FR-reader Daniel informed me about square hoods for the Fujinon XF27mmF2.8 by squarehood here.

Personally, as a XF27mmF2 owner, I prefer not to put any square hood on it, to keep the lens as compact as possible.

But yeah… it actually looks good on the 27 ;).

Fujifilm X-T4 Firmware 1.03 New Exposure Stepping Test: All Good with AUTO ISO and Shutter Speed, but not AUTO Aperture


Fellow Fujifilm X-T group member Kim has also tested the new Fujifilm X-T4 firmware 1.03, and regarding the exposure stepping he says:

  • still stepping if aperture is in AUTO
  • not stepping (much smoother) if shutter speed or ISO is in AUTO

Personally, during my online lessons for my students, I always set a fixed shutter speed and fix aperture, and let the ISO make its AUTO thing (the exposure changed when clouds passed etc, and ISO adapted to it automatically).

Hence, for my use, I never work in AUTO aperture anyway, so the exposure stepping is fixed for me.

But if you shoot video in Auto Aperture or at very high frame rates (100 fps or more), than it’s still an issue.
